Nothing earth shattering to report out of Zips practice today as the players continued to work out in helmets and shells only. Anybody else out there like me who can’t wait for the pads to go on?
Personally, I think the coaches are just getting a feel for who they want to see where and with which team and a serious depth chart will be forthcoming by the end of next week. Zips Nation has been brimming with excitement and enthusiasm since coach Terry Bowden was hired. Just don’t expect miracles right away.
Just as an aside related to the first game of the season against the University of Central Florida: when I vacationed in Florida, I came across more than a few UCF fans and chatted a few of them up. Let’s just say that they’re a bit disenchanted right now and have little confidence in coach George O’Leary. That being said, he’s a rundown of day two at Camp Zippy:
Injury update: Former quarterback and now wide receiver Zach D’Orazio won’t see full contact until at least the first game of the season and possibly longer, coach Terry Bowden said. His separated shoulder, an injury sustained during spring practice, isn’t healing the way doctors expected.
